Stay Warm And Save Money With A Continental Fireplace
Fireplaces are beautiful and cozy. They can help you save money on your heating bill and are available in options to suit every climate.
Nothing says cozy and inviting quite like a fireplace. Whether you’re looking to add character and warmth to a home or want to make an upgrade to an existing fireplace, there are several benefits, both aesthetic and practical, that a Continental fireplace can add.
When you think of fireplaces, the words that are likely to come to mind are cozy, warm, inviting, and possibly traditional. “Fireplace Technology” may seem like an oxymoron, but advances in fireplace design can mean more savings, longer-burning fires, and superior heating. All this, combined with the beautiful design options, are what make Continental fireplaces stand out.
You have more options than you may realize, as several different kinds of fireplaces exist. If you are building new, a gas or wood fireplace can be incorporated in your design plans from the beginning. If you already have a fireplace in your home, but find that it’s inefficient or unattractive, a gas or wood insert can provide efficient and attractive warmth. And if nothing will do but the charm of a standalone stove, you have many options to choose from.
Zone heating is one benefit of a fireplace. When you are using a furnace to heat your house, the cold air is constantly being circulated back to be heated and redistributed throughout the house. If you and your family typically congregate in the kitchen or family room at the end of the day, you’re spending a lot of money to heat your entire house when you really just need heat in one room. A modern fireplace efficiently heats just the room you’re in. If power failures plague your winters and threaten your comfort, knowing that your gas fireplace can light without electricity means you’ll weather those long winter nights just fine.
If you desire the ambience and romance of a fireplace without the heat, a gas fireplace lets you enjoy flickering flames in any season. An adjustable thermostat allows you to snuggle up by the fire even when the weather outside isn’t quite frightful. If you love the flexibility of a gas fireplace, but are concerned that it doesn’t have the same ambience as real wood, you’ll love the beautiful Phazer logs that Continental offers. They’re made of ceramic fibers that are molded into the size and shape of real logs, then hand-painted to mimic the natural patterns and gradation found in wood. They are guaranteed for life and really make a difference in the beauty of your fireplace.
